I go in spurts where I am out and about a ton and then
I need a break from it all and I hibernate in my house for days on end.
A couple of weeks ago, I was out and about quite a bit.
First stop on this edition Field Trip Friday, the Ballard Design Outlet.
I love this place and I try to stop in as often as possible.
They always fun great sales. On this particular day all the lighting was 50% off.
Here a few that I fond of.
Another place I like to hit up often is a little consignment shop in Cincinnati called Astute Furnishings.
They are pretty choosey when it comes to what they will accept on consignment.
They always have beautiful art an antiques.
I fell in love with this dresser and especially the hardware.
Wish I had a place for it.
I'm adding this Batik art to my Christmas wish list.
Uhm, hint, hint, husband.
Yes, both of them....
I spied this beautiful bentwood chair.
It was more than I wanted to spend, but I sure did love that stenciled seat.
Just down the street from Astute Furnishings is Quince and Quinn.
I couldn't find one thing in that store that I didn't want to take home with me.
For example, these chairs.
I obviously have a thing for chairs.
And how about these cool chairs. They would be perfect in a masculine office.
This stripe settee and botanical pillows greets you as you walk in the store.
They carry the Hicks Pendant and many other gorgeous fixtures.
There are plenty of luxurious leather chairs to choose from.
They have a great selection of decorative paper on display too.
I couldn't help but stop and salivate over these malachite pillows.
Two of these large wooden urns would be beautiful flanking a fireplace.
Don't even get me started on the amazing rugs they have.
After leaving Quince and Quinn empty handed, I headed a little further North to Home Emporium.
They had plenty of great furniture, but it was the dhurrie ottomans that caught my eye that day.
They were $99 each.
Now that the crazy holiday shopping season is upon us, you won't find me out and about much.
Amazon.com is my friend these days.
I just signed up for Amazon Prime and if I could order milk and bread from them,
I wouldn't leave my house until January.
Speaking of not leaving my house, it looks like our first winter storm is coming.
Wonder if you can buy red wine on Amazon Prime.
